R3CEV On Blockchain landscape

I went ahead and pointed out that Ripple Labs is now Ripple and it went as well as expected. Admittedly, I used a snarky tone because I thought it was funny.

For the 2nd time, Tim Swanson had a major freak out episode. He blew up my phone, email, and Skype. Then he started contacting people that might be able to get a hold of me. I know he'd love nothing more than to have a private discussion, but he lost that privilege during his first freak out. I know he's watching this thread, so I'll post my reply to him here.

Tim, do not call me, email, Skype, or try to contact me privately in any way. If you are not comfortable having an open, transparent discussion with me, then it's probably something we don't need to be talking about. I do not have my "facts wrong". Your slideshare contained an error. I pointed it out. This has nothing to do with anyone/anything else. How long was your book review of The Age of Cryptocurrency? 23k words? You can dish out the criticism, but can't handle one critical tweet? There is a button on Twitter called "block". Use it.

What did he want to achieve?

I think he wanted to tell me that Ripple and R3CEV have a good relationship. That's great. I hope they do. But his slideshare still said Ripple Labs and not Ripple and that's what my tweet was about.

Fact is that if you look at the landscape of Blockchain and DLT, Ripple is the only system with a build-in XBorder/currency solution. A COMPLETE & WORKING & "BEST rates for CLIENTS" FX market!... fully integrated. For every other system that I've seen so far there always something to add for the conversion from one currency to another .... Adding "something" usually translates in a cost with "manipulated in favor of FI's" rates for clients ...

Once you've used it  (it = x-currency trading on Ripple) on SnapSwap on Bitstamp on RippleFox on Gatehub or on whatever market .... you know what it is, how it works and you WILL LOVE it.
Really wonder how many of those crooks criticizing Ripple while sitting in their golden seats on FI's and banks really did the effort trying it (just like we all did here).

This is part of the reason why I get so frustrated with papers that contain inaccurate information (like that one from the Bank of England). Ripple isn't the easiest thing in the world to figure out and it does take effort to understand it (on a regular basis for me), but if I can get it then it should be a piece of cake for all of the "experts" cranking out papers and advising financial institutions. It does make you wonder who bothered to look under the hood...

Hi guys, I don't normally post on forums because it becomes an endless rabbit hole but I believe readers may be interested in a few points:

(1) The presentation above is several months old and no one from Ripple (Labs) has mentioned anything to me about the logos since it was first published; I feel it is a non-issue though since in practice most people still refer to Ripple (Labs) as Ripple (Labs). Fwiw, the Hyperledger logo also changed 6-9 months ago but no one is tweeting about that discrepancy either. Also, if we are going to be really technical: Blockstack.io no longer exists (it was acquired by DAH) and Peernova isn't really a distributed ledger company so those logos probably shouldn't be on there now either.

(2) After receiving her tweets I did try to contact Tiffany by Skype (which she ignored), by phone (which she ignored) and by email several times (which she ignored).  I also, believing that she would listen to people from Ripple (Labs), looped a few people I knew who work at Ripple (Labs) to speak to her via email and she ignored it.

(3) This was not the first time she has attempted to get my attention via Twitter; back in early October it was over an issue regarding whether the Ripple network was permissionless or permissioned -- though I was able to talk with her via both Skype and email then to clarify in a few minutes what would have been many many tweets.

I don't normally block people on Twitter, but I have now blocked Tiffany.

If anyone else is interested in talking about the presentation feel free to contact me, my contact info is widely available on the internet.  Though, I prefer not to have long conversations on Twitter as it was not the designed for it.

Thanks for your time,

Tim

Hey Tim, welcome.

The first time you flipped out it was because I tweeted this article:

http://www.businessinsider.com/santander-innoventures-invests-4-million-in-ripple-labs-2015-10?r=UK&IR=T

which said Ripple and R3 were working together. "not sure when BI became the paper of record" were your words. 3 apologies later you still weren't satisfied telling me I should have contacted the reporter.

Anyway, happy to have you here for open conversations.

 

Adding...

Regarding this part -"After receiving her tweets I did try to contact Tiffany by Skype (which she ignored), by phone (which she ignored) and by email several times (which she ignored)".   I'd like it noted that this all happened in a very short period of time very late at night.  Considering that Tim himself agrees that the wrong logo being used in his slideshare isn't a big deal, I'm not sure why he felt like contacting me repeatedly around midnight was a good idea or necessary at all. Additionally, it was an entire 15 minute period of time that passed between the first email Tim sent to me and the additional emails he started firing off trying to pull in other people.

Thanks for taking the time to post here and clarify, much appreciated.
